HIS LIST OF BANKS
Campaign Following Charge
of Exacting Excessive In
, terest Goes On.
RESERVE CITIES ACCUSED
Secretary Says He Is Informed New
York Banks Make Money Cost
Correspondents Eight Per
Cent or More.
WASHINGTON, Sept. a5. Continuing
his campaign against high interest
rates ana the hoarding' of money by
banks. Secretary McAdoo made public
tonight a lint of nearly 250 National
banks, in all sections ot the country,
outside reserve and central reserve
titles, which are carrying reserve in
exress of legal requirements.
The list is based on reports to the
Controller of the Currency in answer
to his call of September 12. It shows
that the reserves in these banks run
Iroin 25 per i'ent to 74 per cent, the
leiil minimum being 15 per cent.
"If," K:iid Mr. McAdoo, in a state
ment Riven out with the list, "the large
amount of loanable funds that are kept
from active employment, as indicated
by these figures, were invested In com
mercial or agricultural paper, or lent
on iMoper security the present situa
tion would bo greatly relieved."
The Secretary's . statement, referred
to the list as showing "some" of the
National bunks carrying excessive re
fcives and It was understood that fur
ther, lists would follow iu accordance
with his recent announcement.
Included in Secretary. McAdoo's list
Ihowing the percentage of reserves car
ried by each bank are the following:
Montana F'irst National, Butte, 41
per rent; Yellowstone National, Bil
linprs. per cent; Kirst National, Great
Falls. 35 per cent; First National, Olas
gow, "!i per cent.
Washington First National, Belling
ham. 87 per cent: Yakima National,
North Ynkima. 3!) per cent: Capital Na
tional. Olympia, 41 per cent.
Oregon First National, Vale, 35 per
Kxcesssive Interest Alleged.
Secretary McAdoo today sent a tele
gram to the New York, Boston, Chi
cago and St. Louis clearing-house
"I have received complaints about
hi.h rates of interest which are being
charged by the National banks of New
York, Boston, Chicago and other re
serve cities. It is alleged that the
New York banks are requiring their
correspondent banks throughout the
country to pay 7 per cent for loans
and to maintain a balance with the
New York banks, which makes the
money cost the correspondent banks
the equivalent of 8 per cent or more.
Specific cases have been brought to my
attention where banks in cities of the
South have been required to pay these
high Interest rates. If New York
charges the equivalent of 8 per cent
interest to the correspondent banks, the
money cost to the ultimate borrower is
made high, if not exorbitant.
'From all the evidence before me T
cannot feel that the charge of 7 to 8
per cent interest by the New York
banks is justified, under the circum-
Withdrawals Are Threatened.
"I have taken the position with all
the banks of the conutry that I will
not knowingly issue additional National
bank currency to or deposit Govern
ment funds with banks which charge
excessive rates of Interest or which
are refusing to meet legitimate de
mands for reasonable credits. I have
also taken the position that I will with
draw Government funds from National
banks which are hoarding money and
restricting credits through the, main
tenance of excessive reserves. The
New York banks generally have not
been hoarding money or maintaining
excessive reserves, but they appear to
be charging higher rates of interest
than the conditions seem to justify.
"I am using every just effort to per
suade the banks throughout the coun
try to extend reasonable credits and at
reasonable rates of Interest to meet the
existing unusual conditions created by
the European war, and which, if dealt
with in a helpful spirit by all con
cerned, should quickly ameliorate.
Eumiile of Liberality Desired.
"I should like to see the New York
-banks take the lead in establishing and
maintaining moderate rates of interest
for accommodations, as their example
always has a large influence upon
banking action and sentiment In the
country. If this course Is pursued by
the leading bankers in New York and
other money centers, a real public serv
ice will be rendered and a return to
normal conditions of business will be
"I have been using to the utmost
every power of this Department to as
sist the general business situation and
the banks and I ask only for co-opera
tion on the part of the banks in an
unselfish and patriotic spirit."

"WASHINGTON. Sept. 25. Frequent
charges and insinuations that insidious

Senator Overman said today that the

would then consider the advisability
of extending its inquisition into the
activities of individuals and organiza

months ago into influences alleged to

Overman, "the committee will complete
its investigation and make a report on
all phases of the inquiry, including the
exhaustive investigation of the tariff

press my bill for the prohibition of in
sidious lobbying and regulation of
legitimate lobbying before Congress."

The Canadian artillery, it is thought,

"The report on the sinking of the
Cressy signed by 'Bertram W. L.
Nicholson, commander of the late H.
W. S. Cressy, follows:
"Sir: I have the honor to submit
the following report in connection with
the sinking o H. M. S, Cressy in com
pany with H. II. S. Aboukir and Hogue
on the morning of the 22d of Septem
ber while on patrol duty:
Boats Are Sent Oat.
"The Aboukir was struck at about
6:25 A. M. on the starboard beam. The
Hogue and Cressy closed and took up
a position, the Hogue ahead of the
Aboukir and the Cressy about 400 yards
on her port beam. As soon as it was
seen that the Abkouir was in danger
of soon sinking, all the boats were sent
away from the Cressy and a picket
boat was hoisted out without steam up.
When boats full of the Aboukir's men
were returning to the Cressy the Hogue
was struck, apparently under the aft
9.27 magazine, as a heavy explosion
took place immediately. Almost di
rectly after the Hogue was hit we ob
served a periscope on our port bow,
about 300 yards off.
" 'Fire was immediately opened and
the engines were put full speed ahead
with the Intention of running her down.
Our gunner, Mr. Doughert. positively
asserts that he hit the periscope and
that the submarine sank. An officer
who was standing alongside the gunner
thinks that the shell struck only float
ing timber, of which there was much
about, but it was evidently the im
pression of the men on deck, who
cheered and clapped heartily, that the
submarine had been hit. This sub
marine did . not tire a torpedo at the
Another Periscope Seen.
" 'Captain Johnson then maneuvered
the ship so as to render assistance to
the crews of the Hogue and Aboukir.
About live minutes later another peri
scope was seen on our starboard quar
ter, and fire was opened. The track of
the torpedo she tired at a range of
500 to 600 yards was plainly visible,
and it struck us on the starboard side
just before the aft bridge.
'The ship listed about 10 degrees
to the starboard and remained steady.
The time was 7:15 A. M. All the water
tight doors, deadlights and scuttles had
been securely closed before the torpedo
struck the ship. All the mess stools
and all available timber below and on
deck had been previously got up and
thrown over side for the saving of life.
" 'A second torpedo fired by the same
sub marine missed and passed about
10 feet astern. About a quarter of
an hour after the first torpedo had hit,
a third torpedo, fired from a subma
rine Just before the starboard beam, bit
us under the No. 5 boiler-room. The
time was 7:30 A. M. The ship then
began to heel rapidly and finally turned
keel-up, remaining so for about 20
minutes before she finally sank at 7:55
A. M.' "

lows: "I have the honor to report as follows
concerning the sinking of the Hog-ue,
Aboukir and Cressy: Between 6:15 and
6:30 A. M. II. M. S. Aboukir was struck
by a torpedo. The Hogue closed -on
the Aboukir and I received orders to
hoist out the launch, turn out and
prepare all timber. Two lifeboats were
sent to the Aboukir, but before the
launch could get away the Hogue was
struck on the starboard side amidships
by two torpedoes at intervals of 10 to

"The ship at once began to heel to
starboard. After ordering the men to
get into the boats on the booms and
take off their clothes, I went, by Cap
tain Nicholson's directions, to ascertain
the damage in the engine-room. The
artificer engineer informed me that the
water was over the engine-room grat
ings. "While I was endeavoring to return
to the bridge the water burst open
the starboard entry port doors and the
ship heeled rapidly. I told the men in
the port battery to Jump overboard, as
the launch was close alongside, and
soon afterward the ship lurched heavily
"I clung to a ring bolt for some time,
but finally dropped on to the deck and
a huge wave washed me away. I
climbed up the ship's side and was
again washed off. Eventually, after
swimming about from various over
laden pieces of wreckage, I was picked
up by a cutter from the Hogue,
Coxswain L. S. Marks, which pulled
about for some hours picking up men
and discharging them to our picket
boats and steam pinnace, and to the
Dutch steamers Flora and Titan, and
rescued in this way Commander Sells
(of the Aboukir), Engineer Commander
Stokes, with legs broken; Fleet Pay
master Eldred, and about 120 others.
Twenty Too III to Be Moved.
"Finally, about 11 A. M-, when we
could find no more men in the water,
we were picked up by the Lucifer,
which proceeded to the Titan and took
off from her all our men except about
20, who were too ill to be moved.
"A Lowestoft trawler and the two
Dutch ships Flora and Titan were ex
traordinarily kind; clothing and feeding
our men. My boat's crew, consisting
mainly of royal navy reserve men,
pulled and behaved remarkably well.
I particularly wish to mention Petty
Officer Halton. who, by encouraging
the men In the water near me, undoubt
edly saved many lives.
"Lieutenant - Commander Phlllips
Wooley, after hoisting out the launch,
asked me if we should try to hoist
out another boat, and endeavored to do
so. The last I saw of him was on- the
aft-brldge, doing well.
"Lieutenant-Commander Tlllard was
plcKed up by a launch. He got up a
cutter's crew and saved many lives,
as did Midshipman Cazalet in the Cres

out the whaler very quickly."

by but went off without rendering any

from the Hogue to come close after we
"The Aboukir appeared to me to take
about 35 minutes to sink, floating bottom-up
for about five minutes. The
Hogue turned turtle quickly, in about
five minutes, and floated bottom-up for
several minutes. A dense black smoke
was seen in the starboard battery,
whether from coal or torpedo cordite,
I could not say. The upper deck was
not blown up, and only one other small
explosion when we heeled over.
"The Cressy I watched heel over from
the cutter. She heeled over to star
board slowly, dense black smoke Is
suing from her when she attained an
angle of about 90 degrees, and she took
a long time from this angle till she
floated bottom-up with the starboard
screw slightly out of the water, which
I consider. it was 30 to 35 minutes from
the time she was struck until she was

men taking oft their clothes, as
ordered, and falling- in with hammock

EXPORT LOSS IS HEAVY
EUROPEAN WAR IS COSTLY TO
August, 1914, Figures 977,000,000 Leas
Than Same Month In I913
Manufactures Hardest Hit.
WASHINGTON, Sept. 25. Tremen
dous decreases in American export
trade during August, resulting from
war in Europe, were shown in detail
today by comparisons of the depart
ment of commerce with the business
of one year ago. Export trade to Ger
many practically came to a standstill
while that to France and England,
whose shipping has not been so
seriously interrupted, showed only a
comparatively small decrease. Trade
to Belgium and that to Argentina,
which depends largely on foreign ship
ping, suffered heavily.
The decrease in August's export
trade to Europe as a whole amounted
to 58.32),619. That represented in a
large measure the decrease in credit
abroad as employed to offset American
obligations. The falling oft reached
more than $77,000,000. One year ago
the total was $187,909,020, compared
with $110,369,240 last month.
The effect of the war upon Ameri
can import trade last month amounted
to i23,-( tx.sau, compared with $137
651.553 in August 1913.
Manufactures showed the largest de
crease in exports among the various
groups. Food stuffs almost maintained
their level of one year ago.

HEALTH I5IPAIKED BY FALL
North Idaho Man Expected to Get
Judge Stewart's Place.
BOISK. Idaho. Sept. 25 (Special)
The death of Justice Stewart, of the
Supreme Court of this state, at Dr.
Williamson's sanitarium in Portland at
an early hour this morning, creates an
other vacancy on the Supreme bench of
Idaho which Governor Haines will be
required to fill by appointment until
a successor can be elected at the next
general election. Death was due to a
general breakdown in health following
a stroke of paralysis during the Coeur
d'Alene term of court last Spring. He
had been in the Portland sanitarium
for four months.
Justice Stewart's death Is the first
vacancy on the Supreme bench so cre
ated since territorial days. He was
born at Connersvllle, Ind., February 26,
1858. and was graduated from the law
department of the North Indiana Nor
mal School in 1886. Until 1890 he prac
ticed law In Nebraska and In that year
moved to Idaho, forming a partnership
here with William E. Borah. In 1893
he was elected to the State Legislature
as Senator and In 1896 was appointed
judge of the District Court for Ada
County. In 1906 be was elected justice
of the Supreme Court and re-elected
two years ago to succeed himself, hold
ing his seat on the bench until his
death. Last "Winter he suffered a se
vere fall which weakened him. Two
years ago he was operated on twice for
muscular trouble of the neck.
The death o Justice Stewart calls
upon Governor Haines to appoint a
majority of the members of the Su
preme Court. The Governor recently
appointed Judge Warren Truitt to suc
ceed James F. Atlshie. resigned, to hold
office until his successor is elected in
November. It is probable a Northern
man will succeed Justice Stewart.
